      3 clutches.... hmmm, are VW clutches low quality or are you robbing banks?

      Stock 1.8t clutches are crap. The 1st one burnt out at 18k miles (i bought the car at 12k), the 2nd wasn't quite burnt, but it was starting to slip when the car hit 100k, and now I'm on my 3rd. I went with the 228mm clutch the 2nd and 3rd times with lightened flywheels, and the clutches held well.

      I'll be rolling 400,000 km by end of the year if all goes well. 380,000 and counting. Original Clutch and nearly everything else. Just replaced turbo as preventative maintenance before it self destructs, seals were slowly starting to leak. Original Rear rotors Replacement rotors should be on her soon when i get time those things are pretty worn.

      105k and just lost the third coil pack. Still have 1 original left to change out. 1.8T with 5-speed. No major hassles at all, but of course I'm a bit more hands on than most drivers....

      i do about 80 miles a day at least, with the occasional 150ish days....
      i traded in an '03 1.8T GTI with 105K cause i just felt it was gonna start needing some expensive maintenance and shop time, and its our only car......
      but the gti was kept so sweet.....all it needed was a second buffing of the headlight lenses to look brand new.....someone ended up with a nice higher mileage ride...

      My Bug had just over 173k miles on it when I sold it in 2008.
      That same engine now powers a Jetta that was rebuilt in Kentucky! [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      Total repairs have been:
      Steering rack
      2 sets of ball joints
      Starter
      One battery
      Lots of tires
      4 sets of brakes
      L. control arm bushing
      Trailing arm bushings
      front struts, rear shocks
      I'm pretty satisfied with it so far... lol

      That's excellent!!!
      Was the trailing arm bushing costly & difficult to replace?

      Our 2000 NB GLS manual has 183,000 miles and still humming along. Last month we finally replaced the clutch.
      Have replaced Mass/Flow sensor, battery, starter, tires, water pump, timing belt, rear brakes, ECM, bunch of little things around 80K under extended warranty. Amazed how well the last 100K miles have held up.
